Before Install: Slackware over Ubuntu (Grub to LILO), Dual w/Vista: LILO question
Guys, much because of the help from you all on here, I am basically ready to install! Please keep in mind I am a complete Linux Newbie (green!)
I have: Dell 1545 160GB HD, 2.16Ghz, 3GB RAM system, currently with Ubuntu(9.10) installed along with Vista via GRUB.
Planning to simply put Slackware into the Ubuntu partition (thereby deleting Ubuntu) and install LILO during Slack install.
Q: Will this delete GRUB and simply allow me to select Slack/Vista from LILO? (which would be ideal I suppose). The Slackware HOW-TO said that "Installing LILO can be dangerous. If you make a mistake it's possible to
make your hard drive unbootable. If you're new to Linux, it might be a
good idea to skip LILO installation and use the bootdisk to start your
system at first"
Should I worry about this?
